I headed out to one of my favorite bass spots yesterday evening with my son and a couple of friends. We arrived at Long Lake (just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia) about one hour before sunset, which has always been prime-time for bass this summer, but this time things were very different. Instead of the usual bass, we found ourselves hooking into trout. The first was caught on a number five Mepps Black Fury, which needless to say, cause some pretty severe damage to this beautiful fish so she was kept for the frying pan. We all started using smaller spinnerbaits and hooked into a few more but only landed one more.
As you can see from the photos, the two trout had very different colouration.
